I bought mine years ago. I've adjusted the neck once. The action is good. Easy to play. I bought a hard case when I bought the guitar. I've had no problems with it and can't understand the low ratings. Good sound. The guitar has been all over the US.
This is a fantastic guitar. especially for the price. Amazing acoustic sounds out of this guitar, whether you wanna be Alex Lifeson, or play a lullaby, this guitar does the job. And, if you wan't, plug it in and crank it. Doesn't lose tone. And between the settings on your amp, maybe your effects chain, and the settings on the guitar, you can find your own unique sound. And the built in tuner is definitely a plus. With 12 strings you dont wanna have to sit there all day and tune by ear. Overall its just a great guitar. Without a doubt the best 12 string on the market for the price.
Thanks to the Fishman electronics, the Fender JG12CE-12 guitar sounds great! I use a direct box & plug right into the PA with nothing in between. Probably due to it's small size, the sound is less-than-amazing acoustic, though - almost no bass. The worst part, however, is that it's ALL laminate wood. Even though mine is kept in a climate-controlled room with 3 other guitars, this one (and only this one) has warped like crazy. It's bellied bad at the saddle/bridge, which I guess is not that uncommon on 12-strings, but it is also warped horribly around the sound hole for some reason. It hasn't affected the sound that I can tell, but definitely has affected playability. But, it still gets played very hard & very often in a large setting - it just sings! All-in-all, it's not a bad guitar for the price, but I wish I'd spent a little more & bought a solid-wood guitar.
First the good news- When plugged in this is one sweet sounding guitar! The body is really too small and you really don't get a good, full sound unplugged. However, the Fishman electronics are superb. I use a direct-box and plug straight into the sound system. (Except for my Taylor I run my other guitars through an amp or effects.) The action is a little high, and compound that with it being 12 strings and some things like barre chords are not as easy to play as I would like, but it plays ok.The bad news is that it is very poor quality. The laminated top has warped like crazy, especially right around the sound hole. The nut also cracked shortly after I bought it (the skinny 6th string cut right through it).
